The Zentralfriedhof (German for “Central Cemetery”) is the largest and most famous cemetery among Vienna’s nearly 50 cemeteries: it facilitates the graves of different religious denominations and is the last resting-place of well-known Viennese inhabitants like Beethoven and Falco. You can even find speaking gravestones. Visitors can explore the graveyard and will be rewarded by well tended graves, overgrown tombstones, lonely areas and wild-romantic meadows. It is a very poetic place. A Poetry Café reader was there to take pictures this week and let us use them for this article – thank you Andreas Kepplinger!
